    I'm not sure what you're saying but you can combine it with other offers and if you are savvy enough you may be able to negotiate on the salvage amount that the vehicle is worth.

    I plan on trading in my Accord and my F250. Yes, my F250 is great for hauling stuff but it has it's issues and it leaks oil like crazy. Plus, it will be nice to eliminate one vehicle from my insurance and the yearly costs of licensing it and fuel(diesel).

    Although the "Cash for Clunkers" program began July 1, 2009, the rules are not due out until July 24, 2009 as stated earlier. Anything the dealers decide to do is subject to change. Note that the dealers have to apply and be approved to participate, but there are no guidelines on the criteria for approval. Also note that there is specific criteria for what qualifies as a trade...the original link should clearify. The new purchase has to be a new vehicle as well...so this doesn't work on used vehicle finance.

    The main thing to be aware of is that once the $$$ the government set aside for this program is gone, then its gone...the program will come to an end. If you plan to use it you better decide to do so shortly after the rules are dispursed.

    That random, passed out naked chick will probably give you "something" that you'd be paying for for the rest of your life...just like the gov't.

    It's fun for the moment, but then you wake up one day wondering why it burns when you pee :)

    First let me say hey, newby 1st post. Great site, I've been lurkin for about a week. I'm considering this program to trade my 99 Jeep Cherokee in for a new Taco.

    Your vehicle doesn't have to get at least 10mpg more than the vehicle you are trading in. It depends on the size & type of vehicle. For example: I can trade my 99 Cherokee in for another "light duty truck" (see Taco) and get the full $4500, because my Jeep is rated for a combined 16mpg, & the Taco is rated a combined 18, which meets the required 2mpg difference for "light duty trucks".

    Go to http://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/sbs.htm

    Hope that helps. Again, great site, I'll probably be posting more as I get ready to buy a Taco.
